Kristy Winings grew up in Valley City and was a member of the VCHS class of 1991. Kristy lost the use of her legs 4 years ago in a rollover. This past year, a massive infection resulted in the loss of bone and muscle, and the doctors have told her that she is now restricted to only one hour in her wheelchair twice a day; the remaining 22 hours of her day, she will be bedridden. Kristy is only 39 years old and she has handled her disability with a grace beyond measure. She is far too young to face being bedridden for the rest of her life. She needs our help.

In a pitch-dark room on the third floor of VCSU’s Rhoades Science Center, a small group of students meets weekly to gaze at the night sky.
With their necks craned back and their eyes fixed on the heavenly dome of North Dakota’s only planetarium, the class uses laptops and a projection control panel to play a stellar show that they have created from start to finish.
